Wanton Looks, Radar Eyes, Bird Talk, Spirits! 

When: Sat., Aug. 22, 10 p.m. 2009
For the sake of argument, let’s try to imagine a world where everything even indirectly related to rock ’n’ roll is as insufferably uncool as your gouty aunt’s country-club bridge game. While it’s a safe bet that rock would lose 99.9 percent of its fans to other modes of conspicuous consumption, you can be sure that local rocker Traci Trouble (formerly of Hotlips Messiah and the Paper Bullets) would still be doing everything she’s doing now. I’ve met very few people as passionately dedicated to “the rock” as Trouble, and for her new band, the Wanton Looks, she’s found three other women who share her devotion. Songs like “Worst Side of Me” (on an upcoming seven-inch comp from Kalamazoo’s UFO Dictator Records) and “Demons” combine the snarly, cocksure aggression of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts with Buzzcocks-a-riffic guitar solos and a surplus of well-placed vocal hooks. —Brian Costello
